What to Watch While You Wait for ‘Succession’ to Return

In a post-”Game of Thrones” era, HBO’s “Succession” seems to be everyone’s new favorite show. The dark-humored drama may not kill off nearly as much of its cast as “Thrones” did, but it still gives fans plenty of plot twists, memorable lines and characters that you love to hate.

The series takes family drama to a whole new level with the Roy siblings, Connor, Kendall, Roman and Shiv, who plot against one other and their father, Logan, the founder of the multi-billionaire media conglomerate Waystar Royco. And with that much money on the line, no one is afraid to cheat, stab and steal their way to the top of the family company.

But now that the show’s second season has come to a close, here are a few shows that “Succession” fans can watch to hold them over until the third season. The Upper-class family drama of “Big Little Lies” may remind some viewers of the Roy family, while “Veep” and “House of Cards” feature some of the same real-world political dramatics. Check out the full list below.
